SAP partners with Signal Alliance in Nigeria

Business software firm SAP has partnered with Signal Alliance to offer ‘business planning and execution’ offerings to government and all industries in Nigeria.

According to a company statement, Signal Alliance - a systems integration ICT company - together with SAP plan to offer the solutions that support business strategies, process design and integration, and implementation in the West African nation.

The partnership is planned to help introduce enterprise asset management (EAM) software to the Nigerian market, according to a company statement.

“EAM is a solution from SAP that ensures operational efficiencies, improves asset usage, reduces costs, and better manages capital expenditures throughout the asset lifecycle. It will help address the infrastructural gap in public sector by providing a solution for managing public physical assets ranging from dams, power grids, airports, to vehicles, and building facilities,” it reads.

Collins Onuegbu, managing director at Signal Alliance, said the concept of asset management is the ideal solution to help businesses and government institutions manage and maximise assets.

"A look at the current findings of the Senate Committee on Public Accounts recently showed how national resources were mismanaged through multiple allocations to various government agencies and projects by past governments which make the introduction of a robust EAM system like the one being introduced by SAP and Signal Alliance as both timely and of utmost importance,” said Onuegbu.

The head of line of business for SAP West Africa, Oluseyi Akinyoyenu, explained that for all of its systems and solutions, Signal Alliance was identified as a reliable and competent partner in Nigeria.

“Enterprise asset management is a key driver for the Nigerian economy,” he said.

“This unique solution from SAP covers in details all assets owned by private and public enterprise irrespective of size,” he added.
